Boop-O Soft Release - Red



In Stock

Boop and Bop have a dished (concave) profile, allowing you to gently press the shutter release button with the softer, padded part of your finger just before the finger tip. This is a gentler, more controlled motion than the usual downwards jab with the finger tip itself.

1. Control your breathing – take a breath, let it out, inhale normally, exhale a little until comfortable, then hold your breath.

2. Place your finger across the Boop and Bop so that the soft release is with the soft pad of your finger.

3. Apply pressure to depress the shutter button partway (on the Leica M7 and M8, this is the point at which the exposure is locked in AE mode).

4. Continue squeezing gently until the shutter fires.

This technique may need a little practice, but, once mastered, it can allow you to hand hold your camera one stop slower by not only minimizing jerking (caused by pressing the shutter button too aggressively) but also by preventing flinching (a reflex caused by anticipating when the shutter will release) – if done properly, you will not be able to tell when the shutter will release, so you won't flinch.
